Accused of making an obscene gesture to a fan, Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley says such a thing is not in his character.


Accused of making an obscene gesture to a fan, Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley says such a thing is not in his character.

Fans were abuzz Wednesday over an accusation leveled Tuesday night through a Kansas City TV sportscaster. The fan, who was not identified by the sportscaster, said Haley flipped him off while walking into the tunnel right after Sunday’s 41-34 home loss to Cleveland.

Haley responded Wednesday, saying he appreciates Chiefs fans and wouldn’t disrespect them. He said he has five children to be a role model for, and making obscene gestures to fans is not the way he behaves.

Haley said, “That’s not something I do, would do, want to do, or want to be thought of as doing.”
